After numerous delays, Charleston’s Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House will finally open for business tonight.
Foodies and beer geeks alike have waited anxiously for the bar and restaurant to open its doors after about a year of delays. Friday afternoon, they got their wish as the following message was posted on Craftsmen’s social media accounts:
“Patient friends and fellow beer enthusiasts … we are happy to say we will officially open our doors TONIGHT at 5 p.m. Cheers!!”
Craftsmen will feature 48 craft beer taps divided among a variety of styles. Twelve of those taps will be dedicated solely to IPAs in the front bar, which has been dubbed the Pale Room. The remaining 36 taps will be located in the back dining room.
The food will also be tailored for different beers, at times incorporating beer into the recipe. The menu – which hasn’t been posted yet – will include bar food, entrees, soups, salads and more. The menu will switch up a bit on the weekends as well with some brunchy selections.
Craftsmen is located at 12 Cumberland St. in Charleston. If you plan on going tonight, chances are you won’t the be the only one there.
